. >> we've seen republicans break with grover norquist and put revenues on the table. on the other side of that, here's what a few democrats are saying about entitlements. >> i think people are dreaming if they think we're going to get a deal on entitlements in three weeks. that's just not going to happen. and i think it would be irresponsible to try to come up with any approach to entitlement reform in such a compressed period of time. >> yes or no, do you support raising the retirement age? >> no, i do not support raising the retirement age. >> is that likely to be a bigger sticking point than revenue? or do we not know yet? >> well, i think that's the critical question facing democrats here. are they going to cave and allow, you know, the new deal and the great society programs to be a part of this supposed grand bargain? or are they not? as of now, they are not part of the deal. this is about defense cuts, discretionary spending, and it's about tax cuts. only if the democrats agree to bring in the programs for the elderly and poor and middle class would they become part of the discussi

creeping closer a growing number of republicans are signaling they're willing to throw grover norquist under the bus and negotiate on taxes if democrats ce de ground on their priorities. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt the only pledge we should be making to each other is avoid becoming greece and republicans should put revenue on the table. i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> at least one democrat says reform to entitlement programs could be on the table with the exception of one. >> social security does not add one penny to our debt, not a penny. it is a separate funded operation, and we can do things that i believe we should now smaller things played out over the long-term that give it so will veteran siso will veteran . those that say don't touch it, don't chajs are are ignoring the obvious. >> the question is is the president going to stay where he is? you know what, my way or no other way? the white house has learned something over the course of the last four years whis
